FREE Scribophile contest for October


Just got this from our friends at Scribophile:

Hello from the Scribophile.com team!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I wanted to make this month’s contest interesting. The theme is gothic literature, but with a twist. Traditionally, gothic literature can be broken into two genders. The male gothic heavily features the supernatural, often in a struggle with the main character. The female gothic is more about misunderstood circumstance, where the cause of mystery could be supernatural, but it’s more normal with misread situations. The task is to reverse these genders. There’s more to it than man solves Scooby Doo-esque mystery, woman fights ghosts though, so check out our contest page for more info: http://www.scribophile.com/contests/gothtober-contest/

Entry is free. First prize: $50 cash via PayPal. Second prize: $25 cash via Paypal.

Hope to see your entries,

Cassie and the Scribophile gang
